I really hope someone can help me. I'm kind of a newbie at this so please excuse if I don't use the correct terminology or something.
My Dad's Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has been rooted a few months ago and everything worked completely fine. Then about 2 months ago, it restarted randomly. (This was entirely random) Then something went wrong and the device would not boot at all.
It's a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000
So I tried flashing it with the factory firmware with no luck. (after this the white noise/static screen appeared)
I sent it in for repairs and they said it was a faulty battery and overcharged me to repair it. So I rejected their quotation and replaced the battery myself for a quarter of the price.
Unfortunately this did not fix the problem.
When turned on it shows a white noise screen(I hope that makes sense) and then shows the samsung logo after a few seconds. It will then restart and continue this cycle until I disconnect the battery or it runs out of power.
I'm almost completely certain that it is a software related issue. I'm thinking the firmware got corrupted somehow.
Can someone please refer me to a guide to completely flash the device so that there is no firmware on the device at all, and then flash it with either a custom firmware or the original samsung firmware.
Or if you guys know of an alternative fix please let me know!
PS. I can access the recovery mode (pressing the power & volume button).
I have uploaded a video to youtube showing exactly what it does.
